See the chart at https://www.anandtech.com/show/12...2600x-2600 for differences. It is also a thorough review with plenty of benchmarks comparing the 2. The base clocks and turbo frequencies are different. The 2700 is a 65w chip while the 2700x is 105w.

In a blind test for day to day use, including gaming, I doubt anyone would be able to tell the difference between the 2 chips. However, the 2700 will be easier to cool bc of its lower tdp. But, if you crunch alot of data or do video encoding, the 2700x will provide slightly superior performance. I reccomend referring to the above-linked review's many benchmarks if you have a particular work use to see if the difference is worthhwhile to you.

Both chips are excellent processirs and you can't go wrong with either one. And, you'll get a nice upgrade path as the AM4 socket will be used for quite some time for future processors.

The 2700x is generally has better overclock performance. If you don't overclock the 2700 should be just fine

This a great value. However, gamers beware, to see the best from this you really need cas14, 3200mhz ram, which ain't cheap and largely ruins the value proposition of AMDs offerings. You could get an 8700k and some cas16 2800-3000mhz ram and get better to equal performance for the same cost. Granted the 8700k is 2 cores less, so from a productivity stand point if you're doing tasks that tap all the cores and threads this AMD chip will be better.


Edit: the 8700k option will outperform this everytime gaming IF you overclock it. Performance will be 5-10% less on the amd before overclocking the Intel, it will be a bigger gap if you OC the 8700k. Overclocking the 2700 will be largely pointless as the precision boost handles that extremely well negating the need to manually do it,and manually doing is often showing decreases in performance.

Additional edit: if you're gaming at 60fps get the amd without doubt, even with slower ram you'll have no issues.

hmm what is the difference between the 2700 vs the 2700x? Why does even 2 of these variants exist if they are basically the "same" as this seems to be the opinion on these cpus?

2700x also comes with the wraith prism stock cooler instead of the wraith spire Rgb that comes with the 2700

These chips are beasts. Mine comfortably does 4 ghz all-cores at 1.25 v. Tops out around 4.1 all-core if you really push it, but I don't have the a better cooler to go higher voltage.

The 2700 should overclock to the same 4.2GHz all core as the 2700x but the 2700x with its higher tdp has more headroom. The 2700 has a base clock of 3.2 while the 2700x has a base clock of 3.7. this makes a huge difference if you plan to not overclock all cores. The 2700x is worth it for it's better cooler and if you put an even better cooler on it you can hit 4.5GHz single core! Check my video. 2700x all the way. Worth it

Amazing value for the money AMD is taking over. Intel charged 1k for this level of performance just a little over a year ago.

X model has higher TDP which is supposed to mean better overclocks/temps. Real world benchmarks and tests haven't shown a big variance in performance. AMD chips are still poor overclockers. 1800X and 2700X are hardly noticeably different either...
